9:32 am
let's go to a few minutes of the speech that we are off me. it is right before we sit down know chomsky -- with noam chomsky. the people packed the place. but go to the beginning of that speech. >> we are here at a time when a popular democratic president who is a constitutional lawyer by ,rade has expanded, intensified ,ontinued, and most importantly legitimized in the eyes of many liberals some of the most thegious aspects of what bush administration called this counterterrorism policy, and the obama administration continues to call a counter to his resume
9:33 am
-- counterterrorism and national security policy. despite the fact the president campaigned on a pledge to radically change the way that the u.s. conducted its business around the world and upon taking power issued a number of executive orders that were purportedly aimed at shutting , endingret prisons torture, and closing guantánamo, what has actually happened is that the obama administration has make cosmetic changes, tweaked the language, made a few adjustments to the detention theram, to what is called targeted killing program but it is anything but targeted as we have seen so often, it is an assassination program. and this administration has sold the idea to many liberals of his country and this is a clean war, that it is a smarter war than the ones that were being waged by his predecessor. if you look at the administration's claims of bringing the iraq war to a end,
9:34 am
you have to examine what was on president bush's desk the day he left office, it was the very plan the president obama implemented. it was already in motion. this administration did not bring an end to the iraq war. the bush administration's plan was implemented. also, we have seen expansion of cia paramilitary activity in iraq over the past several months. the largest ever see in the world as the u.s. of a c in baghdad, and strike teams continue to operate out of it alongside of mercenary forces. in afghanistan, the obama administration is waging to double wars. the conventional war you see through embedded journalism and in the covert war that we seldom see which consists of special operations, night raids, drone .trikes, and snatch operations in afghanistan itself, the u.s. military and the cia continued to run detention facilities that
9:35 am
are categorized as filtration sites so that people can be held incommunicado because they're not categorized as prisoners but categorized as potential intelligence assets that can be used in interrogation to produce the next night raid or the next drone strike. u.s. intelligence agents utilize a secret prison that is buried in the basement of somalia's u.s.-funded national security service. when richard rowley and i flew into mogadishu, somalia am a we landed at the airport. as the plane taxied and made its way to the gate, we noticed what to us looked like a forward operating base that we had seen in afghanistan. it was a large walled compound with small hangars inside of it and then a small cluster of buildings that resembled a small village. it looked just like other forward operating bases, expected had a pink hue.
9:36 am
the somalis called it the pink house. and asked some only contacts with the building was, and they said that is guantánamo. that was the nickname they had given for it. it was shorthand for saying that is where the americans are based. what it turned out it was, and i found this out from interfering somalis who were liaisons with the central intelligence agency and u.s. military intelligence, is that the obama administration had initiated a targeted killing and snatch operation based out of that airport where they were building and indigenous editability of somalis that could hunt down individuals -- indigenous capability of somali second members of al shabbat, the group that pledged its allegiance to al qaeda. these agents, i was told by this molly's helping the cia to run this program, are lined up monthly and paid $200 in cash
9:37 am
for being part of this targeted kill-capture operation. in the case of captured prisoners, they take the what they determined to have intelligence value and hold them in the basement of this national security services building which is a bed bug- infested do log -- goulag. prisoners do not get access to the outside world, no access to lawyers. when i was on "democracy now!" talking about this, the red cross said it never heard of the facility and then i gave them the address on the year and told them where they could find it. to my knowledge, they have not followed up on it. i discovered that prison because i met a colleague in somalia who works for an international news organization who is somali and had been put in a prison in retaliation for filming in operation that the u.s.-backed somali forces did not want them to get pictures of. he was put in that prison as a warning. he said when he was there he saw american and french agents
9:38 am
interrogating prisoners. i started to investigate the story. i found out that there was a prisoner who was from kenya -- a canyon of somali descent who was in that prison and he had been snatched from his home in a somali neighborhood in nairobi and shackled him a hooded, and driven to wilson airport in nairobi and then shipped to somalia where he was put in this basement prison. we were able to get testimony smuggled out of the prison of him describing the story and describing how he was interrogated by american agents around the clock and how he had not seen a lawyer, cannot communicate with his family, and has no access to the outside world. when i called the cia for comment on the condition of this prisoner, they confirmed that he had been snatched on orders from the united states government and that he was being held in that prison, and
9:39 am
they said he was dangerous and it is good that he is taken off the streets. they said he was one of the advisors to the then head of al .aeda in east africa so this man was snatched on orders from the u.s. government while president obama is in office, sent to a secret prison in the basement of a u.s.- funded agency, and then interrogated at times by u.s. intelligence and military intelligence personnel, and the cia did not dispute any of those facts that i reported. basically said, well, it is more that we sit in on debriefings with somalis while they are interrogating. so that is the reality of one aspect of the rendition program, the secret prison program, and i think it also speaks to torture and definitions of torture. >> you have been listening to jeremy scahill. that is the beginning of a major dress he gave at harvard university a month ago. i want you to have the whole address.
9:40 am
also, after that speech, noam chomsky was in the audience. i had flown up to boston with jeremy. it was soon after the boston marathon bombings, so we went to pay tribute at copley square and then went over to the event. we sat down with noam chomsky. i'm not married it -- i moderated a discussion between jeremy scahill and noam chomsky. you get that on the dvd. , $100. dvd's ,ut that together with the book $200. this is the last time we are offering this. for all the times we have offered this in the last few weeks, this is the last day of fundraising. we have a goal of $20,000 to raise today. we do not know if it is possible, but i think we can do it step-by-step. all this would be his 10 people -- is 100 people calling you
9:41 am
today, saying about the book and dvd, the jeremy scahill book and double dvd. we urge you to call. or it would be 10 people calling in inflation 2000 owners -- $2000 for dinner and a show. you and a special guest watch the broadcast. then i get to personally host you and your special guest for dinner. we kick back, break read together, and toast link tv, independent television. brought to you by viewers like you are deeply committed to independent media. i want to play your clip from the new film "dirty wars" that is opening all over the country, based on this but we are offering you. read the book, see the film. read the book, see the film. in this clip, journalist jeremy sanaa toravels to investigate the hidden u.s. war.
9:42 am
>> yemen's agent port city was nothing like kabul. in each and afghanistan, life was defined by war. everything revolved around it. but in yemen, there was no war, at least not officially. the strike seem to come out of the blue. most yemenis were going about life as usual. it was difficult to know where to start. the yemeni government claimed responsibility for the strikes him as saying they killed dozens of al qaeda operatives. but it was unclear who the targets really were. or who was even responsible. >> and excerpt from "dirty wars ," based on this remarkable
